Principal's Blog 2-3-23

Posted by Zachary Kleypas on 2/3/2023

Greetings Panthers,

Happy Friday. I hope everyone is well, staying safe, and keeping warm. 

Similar to a few years ago, when we had a bad winter storm, we know it affects families differently. Some families lost power, others had damages, and many lost trees.

I would love it if you wouldn't mind taking a second to send me a quick email at to let me know how you and your family are doing. Especially if you are in need of anything. We at PHS would love to support however we can.


Otherwise, we look forward to seeing everyone again on Monday. As a reminder, Monday will be an A Day.
